In short:

Earlier this week, I presented as part of a panel discussion at the 2017 DLF Forum conference. I am releasing my slides and speaking notes for that presentation.

Please see my note about the scope of this website.

Earlier this week, I was part of a panel discussion of CLIR Fellows at the 2017 DLF Forum conference.

The presentation's abstract is below:

Surveying the landscape of data governance and ethics

Jacob Levernier(1), John Borghi(2), Jacqueline Quinless(3), M. Scott Thompson(4)
1: University of Pennsylvania, United States of America; 2: California Digital Library, United States of America; 3: University of Victoria, Canada; 4: CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow, United States of America

The purpose of this panel is to describe the current data governance landscape, identify tools useful for shaping features of that landscape, and consider how individuals in these areas may collaborate with each other and others, including in industry, as data sharing and re-use become more systematized, commonplace, and incentivized.


My slides are available here in odp format (which should be able to be opened in LibreOffice as well as PowerPoint. I've included the slides in this format because the final slide contains an animated GIF image that does not render in PDFs. Cf. the full panel's slide deck in PDF format.

Speaking notes

My speaking notes are reprinted below. This was a 6-7 minute brief introduction; each panelist agreed to reduce our initial speaking time in order to leave more time at the end of the session for discussion.
